Battery life is still reporting lower than Lion.

Did anyone have this update show up with the notification center? It never showed up for me.

Nor for me. I don't see any improvements with battery life either. I'm still down somewhere in the range of 35-45 minutes from Lion with a 2011 13" MacBook Pro.

I have no problems with the LION OS at all.

A clean install of Mountain Lion will go a long way towards improving your battery life. Then re-calibrate your battery.

I had actually run into some issues sending iMessages to my wife, but haven't had one since upgrading to 10.8.1. No problems to report otherwise. Mountain Lion seems pretty darn solid. Well, unless you're dealing with battery life issues.

So far with an early 09 mac mini Lion is a better OS and I hated that. This is even more buggier and incredibly slow OS.

Interesting. Have you tried a clean install? My 2009 seems pretty nimble and bug free.

Whilst I'm happier with Mountain Lion than I was with Lion, I still prefer Snow Leopard to the pair of them Confused

No I didn't. If I knew how to save everything I needed ( I can't seem to find my iphoto's, and iTunes songs) and actually had a drive for that. I would do a clean install of snow leopard instead.
